Domestic Violence Charges And Allegations Can Harm Your Reputation
Many people fail to fully grasp how an allegation of domestic violence can adversely affect their lives. In fact, it not only jeopardizes their freedoms but also adversely affects their families, professional reputations and social images. You should not take allegations of domestic violence lightly.
Texas law defines domestic violence as the reckless infliction of physical or emotional injury upon a family or household member. Attorney Frank Jackson defends people throughout Dallas-Fort Worth who have been charged with assault against a spouse, child, parent, sibling or close roommate. With over 50 years of criminal law experience, he has the necessary insight to protect you from these serious criminal charges.
Protective Orders And Consequences Of Charges
It is important to understand that an arrest for domestic violence can lead the court to issue an emergency protective order, which prohibits you from going within a certain distance of the victim. If you live with the victim, the order will prohibit you from returning home until the order expires or the court lifts it. If you violate a protective order, then the state can charge you with an additional crime.
Attorney Jackson defends people against domestic violence charges related to:
- Domestic/spousal abuse: Claims made by a family member or close roommate involving allegations of sexual, physical or emotional violence
- Child abuse: Allegations made by a child concerning inappropriate physical, emotional or sexual violence
- Assault: Charges related to physical and emotional threats made by a close personal relation
- Sexual assault: Nonconsensual sexual contact between family members and close personal relations
If a court convicts you of domestic violence, then you can face severe penalties, including jail time, probation and damage to your reputation. These are serious allegations that can affect the rest of your life.
